Tiger safari India | wildlife Tour India | wildlife safari India | Wildlife Photography Tour India

Undoubtedly, there is a lot more to Madhya Pradesh than erotic temples, hill forts and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Hailed as the ‘Heart of India’, the central state is home to exotic wildlife. State’s prized possessions, Tadoba, Pench, Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Park are wonderful places to visit for wildlife lovers and nature admirers. We understand that visiting just one tiger reserve for wildlife tours in India won’t satiate your adrenaline rush; thus, we provide a combination of four to increase the chances of tiger sighting.

With our exclusive tiger Safari tour package, you can enjoy a wildlife safari in India with an expert photographer and guide Harsh Agarwal by your side. He takes you to the best viewing zones in the parks to sight a variety of wildlife species especially the ferocious predators. Besides the Royal Bengal Tiger, you can spot sloth bears dozing off, marsh crocodiles basking in the sunshine, Barasingha staring at you from a distance, Indian python creeping in the greens and so on.

From hotel bookings, organizing game safaris to ensuring you get the best guides and experience, we take care of everything at unmatched prices. Feel free to get your itinerary customized and add other destinations if you want. If you are looking for an unparalleled wildlife holiday, let The Wildlife Tour ( Sister concern of Indian Maharaja Tours) plan it for you!

If you go by our suggestion, we will tell you to add village tours to your itinerary. This is absolutely optional and can be added if you want it only. One may visit national parks for tigers and other flora and fauna. But it’s pretty rare that you get a chance to see tribes and nomads and meet them personally, visit the mud houses, etc. If you wish to experience a world far away from the famous tourist trails, then no place can be better than villages in India. Join us on a village tour and immerse yourself in the traditions of India and the ancient culture. Additionally, get fascinated by folklife.

You’ll get to feast on local delicacies prepared with freshly grown ingredients, listen to age-old stories while sipping a hot cup of tea, click pictures with friendly people and a lot more. Besides soaking in heart touching hospitality, you can learn pottery, go on nature walks, spend time with the tribal women (they will sing and dance beautifully if asked) and watch them paint their house with cow dung. Visit markets to buy some local handicrafts. Still using bullock carts as a mode of transportation, the villagers will help you experience the rawness of the culture.

The exclusively crafted itinerary allows you to explore the best of Madhya Pradesh especially the wildlife tour and the village life from close quarters.
